re: Nokia To Microsoft: Can't Sell Phones Without Apps
What this article does not explain is that the 165,000 WP apps are not available on all Nokia devices. For example, many phones running WP7/Mango/7.8 cannot access some of the WP8 apps. Pandora is a great app on WP8, but get this, its not even available on the new Nokia Phones running pre-WP8 versions! Users have to get a third party app. Same for Instagram...Instagram is about to be released on WP8, but will not function with devices running earlier versions. In fact the marketplace should really be named Third-Party Central. Nokia, prepare your swords for battle because your arguments hold great merit - MS is not holding up its end of the deal at all.
